posted on these pages in the last year .......

my overwhelming favorite is owned by a fellow NYC rider who snapped up a gorgeous Gios with full Campy super record on ebay for under $400 shipped. it was listed with crappy pics and not much info but "buy it now" and a bit of faith landed him a stunner. new saddle, cables and bartape resulted in pure perfection and elegance.

doug's bianchi grabbed me as it was not only a fine rig but looks ready to take on anything and ride anywhere. hinault fetishist mr. hickey with his kg** (2 digit?) Look carbon singlespeed round out my top 3. both are just plain sexy and show a lot of thought in component selection and balance.

Dave's LOOK is even better in personTig

His LOOK Hinault has a certain classic, yet modern soul to it. The simple elegance of a single speed is enhanced by the rare frame with it's smokie carbon tubs and minimal graphic accents, combined with beautiful pure bred DuraAce track components and the smooth, polished lines of the stem and brakes. The matching red bar tape, saddle, bottle cage, and even tires all work perfectly with the frame's red accents. The rear wheel dishing is spot-on for a single speed. In other words, it is art!

I think it might even fit me, so you better lock it up Dave!
You guys are making me blush. Thanks for the kind words. nmDave Hickey
